AppleSox in wild race to the finish

Bend 9, Wenatchee 4 last night.  

 

Wenatchee at Bend 5:05 today.  

 

The Dirty Dozen

With each team having about 12 games remaining in a 54-game season, only half a game separates the top three squads in the North.  With last night’s loss to Bend, the AppleSox dropped from first (a tie) to third.  Victoria may be only 3½ back in fourth, but unless they reverse their current trend (8-17 in their last 25 games), they’re out of it.  Basically it’s a three-way sprint to the finish with two teams making the playoffs.  The South is most likely decided, Corvallis and Bend in one order or another.  

 

July 28 Games

Petty good day.  On the 28th Wenatchee is 6-2 overall, 6-1 in league games and undefeated in five games on the road.  They have four consecutive victories, one in each of the last four seasons.  Their only game on this date against Bend was in 2007 and the Elks won 3-2.  

 

Road Woes

Yo-yo adventures have befallen Wenatchee this season away from home.  They started 1-7, followed by going 6-1 and have now slipped to 1-6.  Total 8-14.  

 

Time for some more minor league team names from yesteryear. 

Lynchburg Shoemakers (Vir.)

Petersburg Goobers (Vir.)

Ottumwa Standpatters (Iowa)

Fort Dodge Gypsum Eaters (Iowa)

Leavenworth Convicts (Kan.)
